When I was young, I longed for many things and to be many things, some that I had no clear understanding of, but as I grow older and longer in the tooth, I realize that the longing for self-actualization means more to me than anything else.
With this longing to realize my aspirations and to use my potentials to it’s optimum performance comes a most deep longing for World Peace.
As long as we live in such a divisive World, the length of our days are shortened in our quality of living which will be corroded by stress. We should remember that it’s not how long we live that matters, but how well.
As we all long for peace is not enough just to talk about it. We have to live it. We have to lend support in stopping the divisions, segregation, violence and intolerance.
The government is made by people. We are the government and our actions, interactions and pens wield far more strength than we know. Use your voice positively and stop adding to the long-term disease of social issues by fueling it with vitriol.
As for my dreams, the long and short of it is that I know that as long as I keep pushing and don’t give up, each day my success is brought closer with a step.
My strides may not be long and fast enough, but my snail speed is better than sitting down, building castle’s in the air and doing nothing.
